May consider Zeiss 85 1.4 over Nikon's - Experiences anyone?
Apr 24, 2010

Allright, here we go again Thing is: I am looking right now a portrait lens in 85-105mm zone. I've put my 105VR for sale to partially fund this new purchase.

Nikon 85 1.4 definitely worth it.

Zeiss 100/2 over budjet and skin rendering doesn't please my eye.

So Zeiss 85 1.4 - This one's price tag I can handle and I've been looking this lens before. Skin Tones are much more pleasing to my eye. Does anyone own this lens or used it for portraiture work? Any comments and feedback are welcome.

Thanks,
Jar1San
